Berry Sensation Smoothie

low glycemic recipeAuthor: Lily Mazzarella
Blueberries are a low-glycemic fruit full of anti-oxidant, blood vessel-strengthening, eye and brain-protecting flavonoids. Raspberry boasts similar anti-oxidant flavonoids, along with a couple of unique compounds: ketones, which appear to have a stimulating effect on our cells’ metabolism, and ellagitannins, which have a potent inhibitory effect on certain cancer cell lines, at least in vitro.






Research from the USDA showed that organic raspberries boast great anti-oxidant activity (which makes sense—since flavonoids and other goodies are a plant’s natural herbivory defense compounds). Also, buy and pick ripe raspberries—research out of Cornell University shows they have more of the good stuff. Pineapple is the source of the anti-inflammatory compound bromelain. If pineapple doesn’t agree with you or bothers your mouth, leave it out!

Ingredients

8-12 oz of water, coconut, hemp, almond or brazil nut milk
1⁄4 c raw cashews (best soaked overnight; discard soaking water)
1 c mixed blueberry, raspberry, and blackberry, fresh or frozen
1⁄2 organic pineapple (or papaya, if preferred), fresh or frozen
1-2 tsps flax seeds (best if ground)
1⁄2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp Divine Turmeric Paste
1 serving Protein Powder of choice  (we recommend NutriBiotic’s organic, raw sprouted brown rice protein OR Great Lakes Hydrolyzed Collagen)

Directions

Wash all ingredients well and blend!

Handed to friends as gifts...everyone loved the gesture and delighted in the chocolates. Wonderful product, darling sentiment and packaging.

love it

love the smell of this. it is the perfect combination of oils!

It's a staple

I take this daily to help ward off cold and flu, and take extra after a wine night! Good price for this product.

Great!

I made Lily's Recipe for the turmeric paste and we are both having a spoonful every Morning.
Thank You

Asolutely delicious

I swore by the Radical Immune Powder until I tried this one. It is an amazing addition to almost every hot beverage and is a great addition to smoothies, or turning my hot chai/coffee into an iced treat. Fantastic blend.
